The Third Book

François Rabelais

Update: 2020-04-22

Francois Rabelais to the Soul of the Deceased Queen of Navarre

  • Abstracted soul, ravished with ecstasies,
  • Gone back, and now familiar in the skies,
  • Thy former host, thy body, leaving quite,
  • Which to obey thee always took delight,—
  • Obsequious, ready,—now from motion free,
  • Senseless, and as it were in apathy,
  • Wouldst thou not issue forth for a short space,
  • From that divine, eternal, heavenly place,
  • To see the third part, in this earthy cell,
  • Of the brave acts of good Pantagruel?
